I wonder how much the system requirements will change from Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries.  In any case, it's nice that the Mechwarrior series is finally making a comeback.  Although you probably won't need a *coughVoodoocough* to play this game, I wouldn't be surprised if you had to install PhysX.

Oh. My GAWD!  Those graphics were amazing.  Did you see that PPC glowing between shots?  The machinegun rounds bouncing off the Atlas?  I have been hoping someone would reboot the MechWarrior franchise and damn, here it comes.  I am beyond stoked and can not freaking wait.

Please include some of the awesomeness of the pen and paper game, like C3 units.  Please  include orbital drop missions!!

I think I may have shed a tear watching that trailer.

I'm still excited but the tech is old!!!! I want clan and word of blake tech.  Even better would be Dark Age.

They make another mercenaries game. That's where it's at. MW: Mercenaries would be nice.

Sweet!  I often reminisce about the mechwarrior days of yore.  I hope they let me customize my mech.  I cant wait to have three gauss rifles on a mech.  Or 3 LRM20s.  Good times!

This better not be a joke.  It would be a cruel joke, indeed.

What couple posible go wrong with such a gesture of faith and awesome?

it's been awhile since i have played a good mech game. last one was earthsiege 1-2 + starsiege.

didnt get to play mechwarrior 4, due to its crazy requirement of a vodoo GPU , and wouldnt play with anything else.

 

looking foward to this title very much.

I still have the original earthsiege game. I bought it at sears when i bought my 1st real computer (post atari 800). A packard-Bell w/ a 75MHz intel proc and 4MB ram. I upgraded 1 week later with another 4MB for a whopping 300 smackaroos. The game played great!! never finished it though.....mmmmm
